Re: String Theory Trilogy

Canonically, Janeway's sister was only mentioned in passing, and not by name, in "Coda." But "Coda," written by Jeri Taylor, draws heavily on the Janeway backstory from Taylor's novel Mosaic, which is where her sister was introduced and named.

She was also mentioned in one line in "Sacred Ground".

JANEWAY: I've never been able to draw. My sister was the artist in the family.

^Or TNG: "Conundrum," sort of. The other characters don't remember MacDuff, since they don't remember anything, but he's just suddenly there as if he's always been. So it's another case where we know the character's out of place but the cast doesn't.
I remember when that episode first aired, I was royally confused. Who was this MacDuff character? I kept thinking back to previous episodes trying to figure out if I had seen him before. It didn't dawn on me until about halfway through the episode that he might be key in what was going on.

Re: String Theory Trilogy

Thanks for offering your opinions. I went ahead and downloaded the books. The first two were quite good, but as alot of posters said, the 3rd is a little hard to get through.

Re: String Theory Trilogy

But speaking of sister's, just where did Chakotay's sister come from. I remember she just sort of popped up out of nowhere during he Spirit Walk books.

Chakotay's sister was mentioned in passing in the 7th-season episode "Author, Author."
